Farm Happenings for May 18, 2021

Posted on May 16th, 2021 by Rae Strobel Barr

Hooray!  the start of the CSA season is here....and y'all know that means strawberries and greens :)   Despite the cool weather last week we finally saw the strawberries start to ripen just in time for your first share this week.    Our friends at Red Tree Mushroom have just started harvesting Fresh Shiitakes as get those in the extras page!    We are already well into the planting season here.   That means most of the summer crops are started already and some in the ground.    And if you can believe it we have already prepared the soil for some fall crops like sweet potatoes (lots of planning involved here).   Sweet potatoes from last year make an appearance in this first box as well, and they are sweet and delicious after being stored properly this winter.    We hope you are excited as we are for the season....looking forward to much bounty!
